Outstanding goals by two veteran strikers, Steve Bull and Martin Foyle, lit up a disappointing First Division derby last night at Molineux, where Port Vale held Wolves to a 1-1 draw.

A tedious game hardly deserved the two highlights given to it by the 32-year-old Bull and the Vale substitute Foyle, who is two years his senior.

Neither goalkeeper had been seriously tested before Bull found the net in the 73rd minute for his third goal in four days to take his tally for the club to 294. He gained possession from a through ball by Darren Ferguson, held off three strong challenges and powered a superb low right-foot drive into the corner from 20 yards.

Vale equalised eight minutes from time. Stuart Talbot did well just outside the area to side-step two challenges and lay off a short pass which Foyle curled over Mike Stowell from 16 yards.
